There are three grading systems in which the students can read their IGNOU Result grade card i.e. letter grade, qualitative level, and point grade. These three different types of grading system are applied in case of different programmes for representing result of term end examinations, assignments, practicals, projects and term-end examinations in the grade card.
We have provided below the detail about these grading systems:
- Letter Grade System – The IGNOU use the letters such as A, B, C, D, E to E in the result grade card to represent the marks obtained by students for that particular course. Again every letter grade has its interpretation of ‘qualitative level’.
- Qualitative level – The letter grades mentioned above can be set to different qualitative categories e.g. the student who has obtained the “A” grade in any course will be represented in qualitative level as “Excellent”. In the same way, B represents the “Very good”, C as “Good”, D as “Satisfactory” and E as “Unsatisfactory”.
- Point grade – In point grading system, 5- is considered as ‘Excellent’, 4-“Very Good”, 3-“Good”, 2-“Satisfactory”, and 1-“Unsatisfactory”.
We have provided below the representation of the three different grading system in tabular form so that you can easily correlate them:
|Letter Grade||Qualitative Level||Point Grade|
Note: There is also a grade card ‘Z’ which is assigned to the course in the grade card in which the student has not written anything in both the theory examinations answer sheet and the tutor marked assignments.
The university sends the grade card to students in the form of a hard copy via post.
